this? >> soledad, obviously president obama is condemning this, calling it highly provocative. he issued a statement and said north korea's nuclear weapons and bollistic missile programs constitute a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. and he continued the u.s. remains vigilant in the face of north korean provocations and steadfast in our defense commitments to allies in the region. obviously ther obvious obviously, there is grave concern. the north koreans are saying they have a different type of weapon, more sophisticated, more powerful. what is happening right now is that the u.s. and international organizations are monitoring what they -- what they can from this test. they are sending the united states, sending planes aloft and what they do, they have sensors on them, and they try to sniff the air in a way and figure out exactly what kind of explosion that was. because there are a couple of different types of explosions, and depending on that, we could find out how much they can do of testing in the future and perhaps create a bomb. soleda
is and what he is up to. it is especially important when this obama administration has bragged that they're the most transparent administration in history. but we sure didn't see much transparency this weekend. hey, folks go out and have a great one. come back and see us tomorrow.

and blocked president obama as a president. i feel like a democratic president should be able to put into the cabinet who he wants to put in that position. the simple fact is, he is the president. why should a democratic president allow people like lindsey gramm, john mccain, who ran for president -- the federalist papers speaks directly about the filibuster. hamilton's book about this. when a small minority is able to -- is able to stop the progress of the american people, please put somebody in have of them speak on the filibuster. pull some -- put somebody in and have them speak on the filibuster. host: here are some quotes about the luster -- the filibuster. an independent culpa --call from michigan. caller: there are more important issues. i think this is a slap to our presidency and an insult. host: on twitter -- being park, illinois, chris and the republican line. caller: if you look closely at what republicans are objecting to, it is one or two things. especially because mr. hagel is a republican, he looks alarmed getting attacked on those accounts. if he has an honest disagr
wrote to president obama asking for the underlining memos that the administration still has approdeclined to provide to congress. 11 senators signed that. a total of eight democrats and three republicans. democrat ron wyden was leading the charge on a letter. the chairman of the senate judiciary committee patrick leahy was on the letter on the democratic side. on the republican side, a motley crew of senators. you had mike lee of utah, grassley of iowa, susan collins of maine. that sort of indication of where you get concerned about the drone issue on the hill. you see a smattering of liberal democrats concerned in the house and a small handful of libertarian-leaning republicans that have expressed concerns on this issue. host: these underlying memos that the members of congress want, do they have to do with just drone strikes in general, drone strikes that have occurred against other alleged al qaeda operatives? guest: they may not happen to withdraw on strikes in general. they might have to do with drone strikes in specific. one of the issues that came up here is our anwar
condemnation. the u.n. security counsill pla to hold a meeting. >> on the day president obama focusing on the state of the union address he will have to divert his attention to what's going on to more provocative actions to north korea. north korea detonate ago miniature nuclear device at a test facility. the united nations confirms fox ne blast was larger than previous test 4.9 on the richter scale. he is calling it a highly provocative act. the president further states these provocations not make north korea more secure far from achieving the goal of becoming a strong and prosperous nation north korea instead increasingly isolated and i am pov rished people through the i will add vised pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery. >> they come on the heels of launch ing intercont nontal missile tests. they are concerned about the north's latest nuclear test. they fear the north is moving toward a weaponzation program that could threaten the international community. china which provide aid to north korea also issued a statement condemning today's testing stating
the same size as it was when president obama took office, the unemployment rate today would be over 10%. this is a number nobody talks about anymore. it's a stunning number. there's simply not enough people in the workforce. and that's what makes me worry about the long-term viability of the recovery. >> and people are still withdrawn. 169,000 left the labor force in the month of january. that cannot be good. 8.5 million people are not even over the labor force in the past four years. 8.5 million people have withdrawn from the labor force. i mean, that's a terrible number. i'm not making a case, by the way. i'm not a bull on the economy because i think there are too many problems on policies and whatnot. but these jobs numbers generally, they keep looking very, very, very mediocre. >> i tell my folks back home, we can ignore the rates, ignore the revisions. the one question, the one question only is how many jobs did we create last quarter? until that number is 200,000 or 250,000 i think there's a lot to be concerned with. >> the one thing i'll ask, though, i know you're not here for y

with strategists from president obama and mitt romney. secretary of state john kerry is calling on congress not to make senseless reductions in foreign aid to automatic spending cuts scheduled to begin march 1. the secretary spoke at the university of virginia in charlottesville. he was introduced by virginia senator tim kaine. this is an hour.

word today from president obama. he's taking on the gop on the right fiscal course for the country. he released his weekly radio address and says it's time to finish the job of cutting the deficit by the goal of $4 trillion. >> i disagree with republicans who think we should do that by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training or medicare and social security benefits. that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction while the wealthiest are asked to do nothing more. that won't work. we can't just cut our way to prosperity. >> republicans aren't holding back in their gop address today. criticizing the president over the upcoming threat of sequestration. >> what the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea proposed by his administration during the debt limit negotiations in 2011. and now we in the house on behalf of our constituents are calling on the president to join us in replacing his sequester with better, more responsible spending cuts. >> joining me now, correspondent for the garden, an
a letter to president obama asking him to withdraw the nomination of chuck hagel, which he is not going to do because there are enough republicans to join democrats do voigt for him. he will be confirmed next week we are one week from the sequester. president obama saying come on. we can't let that happen. once again, boehner and mcconnell refuse to compromise. it looks like 800,000 civilian employees at the pentagon will go on furlough starting one week from today. that and a whole lot more to get into this morning on the "full-court press," which we will do. take your calls at 866-55-press. first, we get the latest today's current news update from lisa ferguson joining us from los angeles. hi, lisa. good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. president obama inand vice president biden are attending the democratic governor's association this morning andbam obama willing talking about a variety of national issues about economic and trade issues between the two countries. later, vice president biden will join the two for lunch. biden is also continui
obama's oscar dress is a little racy for iran, so they photo shopped it. during a report on the oscars, the first lady's dress suddenly had a high neckline and sleeves. mrs. obama helped announce "argo" as the winner of best picture which iranian officials also slammed as propaganda for the c.i.a. calling the oscars politically motivated. i actually like the dress on the right. i don't know what that means. >>brian: i didn't know iran had colorforms. what does iran think about the way ben affleck think about the way it was depicted? do you think it was for diplomatic reasons where they captured our hostages? do we skew that? >>steve: iran said it is basically farcical about the movie. >>brian: let's talk about the president yesterday and his comments. i cannot believe how much is going to go wrong. $85 billion, no one is going to be inspecting me. going to be an hour and a half to get on a plane. we are going to have massive defense cuts, and the national parks are going to be cutting down their hours. the president and the white house cabinet is in full force to say sequester. it is g
unharmed. >>> his vacation now over, president obama diving right back into the world of washington politics. in the next hour, the president is scheduled to speak about those automatic spending cuts, set to take place next friday unless congress tankes some sor of action. christine romans joins me to break down how we could potentially feel these cuts if something isn't done. good morning. >> good morning, carol. the first question is what is the sequester, this wonky, horrible budget washington word you keep hearing. it's a fancy word for budget cuts, forced budget cuts. you could also think of the sequester as the "or else." last year it was decided we had to get our budget deficit under control, democrats and republicans together, or else, or else we would have these draconian spending cuts start the beginning part of this year. they didn't get their budget act together and this is the or else, the big budget cuts that are automatically going to happen. it's really frustrating, carol, because this was never -- these were never supposed to happen. this was supposed to be somethin
to do something right. today president obama warned of the casualties, a weakened national defense, the huge loss of jobs, and with it a crippling of the recovery. by the way, with that ax ready to fall, he offered a way out of the endless government shutdowns and the fearfulness and the low morale that goes with it. will the republicans respond to anything he says now? will they at least try to avoid another slam bang crash in washington? will they pull back from the brink and start climbing mountains instead of crashing over cliffs? i've got two former party chairs with me, republican michael steele and democrat ed rendell, both msnbc political analysts. let's start with the president this morning in the stark terms he laid out for republicans. it's not just the economy that will suffer from the looming cuts next week. that's march 1st. national security will as well, and it's seriously at risk. >> already the threat of these cuts has forced the navy to delay an aircraft carrier that was supposed to deploy to the persian gulf, and as our military leaders have made clear, changes
. >> the pressure cooker, president obama tries to turn up the heat on congress again. this time it's because there are just days left before those automatic spending cuts kick in. will a public push help the deal come together or just make everybody dig in their heels? meanwhile, the dynamic debt dee owe the simpson-bowles, they have a revised blueprint for a deal they say will cost $1 trillion more than it would in 2010. they're going to be here later to tell us about it. and will there be a path back to public life for mark sanford? the former governor wants to head back to grease. good morning from new york. it's tuesday, february 19th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. keep sending in your good morning greetings. we didn't have arable ones for today, but we want to hear from everybody that's watching today. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. with ten days left to prevent $5 billion in automatic spending cuts for the year kicking in, today we're going to get a taste of the president's end game. the white house plans to use that to at least reap political be
of the state speech by governor david heineman. then after that president obama and represent roby. >> i think the women themselves, in many cases, were interested in politics but had no vehicle to express that in their own lives so they were attracted to men who were going to become politically active or already politically active. >> each of them i find intrigue gigging precisely because they are so obscure. i think half of these women probably would be almost totally unrecognizable to most men and women on the street. >> c-span premieres its new series "first ladies, influence." we're exploring the lives who served as first lady from martha washington to michelle obama. season one begins monday night on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. watch the program earlier in the day live at 2:00 p.m. on c-span. >> nebraska governor gave his state of the state address. he gave the plan to lower income tax and corporate income taxes. this is about 20 minutes. >> thank you very much. mr. president, mr. speaker, members of the legislature, tribal chairmen, distinguished guests, friends and fellow nebr
like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? >> massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longer -- they were stained women or something of the sort, because they no longer could teach in the public schools of massachusetts as a married woman. so she was a mother and homemaker. >> how many brothers and si
, and they have at the most popular politician in the country behind their back. president obama said he is ready to work with them. notably he and former president bill clinton had become more eager to get ahead, more progressive, vs senate democrats. you've got to be ready to compromise a little bit with the other elements of congress in the coming months. you are going to have defections when it comes to gun control, immigration, and what we may have to do with a fiscal policy. host: you touch on that point, an unlikely ally for house democrats, the speaker of the house, john boehner. guest: that is something that many democrats have pointed out. he made -- he may need them to get some of these bills passed. as he did with the debt ceiling vote. as he did with the bill for hurricane sandy victims. as it came with the fiscal cliff agreement. i see that as a possibility with a gun control and immigration, because while republicans cannot be eager and willing to discuss the issues, pulling suggest that the house may have to pass something. i will meet democrats. host: -- they will need democrats.
, and welcome to this "pbs newshour" special coverage of president obama's "state of the union" address. we want you to know this program is also being livestreamed on our home page on the web. in just a few moments, the president will spell out his policy agenda for the start of his second term. he is expected tonight to focus mainly on jobs and the economy, and to highlight other domestic priorities including gun control and immigration reform, but also to touch on international challenges. here with me, as they will be throughout our coverage tonight, are syndicated columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. mark, what is different about a state of the union when it's the first one of a second term? >> you don't have that many more to look forward to? the sand is running out of the glass. this is probably the best shot that most presidents have in their second term is that first year-and-a-half before you get into congressional elections and the lame duckness really sets in. the race to succeed him begins while he's just sitting there. so this is important. this is th
president obama and secretary clinton hugged the focus to the asia-pacific, but you have worked with her mother. so my question is to southeast asia and what you share with your vision of how to build brown eyes next year i think burma will be the chair and how to build a to the centrality role in how to work into that. the code of conduct and the rule of law to resolve some of the conflicts? >> i think it would for sure. i have to say since i haven't had a chance to visit burma myself yet, i'm probably less conversant with it than i am at the other major cases we are working on. but clearly there is plenty of opportunity for progress in this phase in the u.s. policy is really trying to drive back. in terms of the rest of southeast asia, right now as we look at future engagement, there are a couple countries we have to be sensitive to and that we are reviewing. but we haven't got much beyond that stage. sorry not to be better informed to answer your question. >> when the back row there. >> thanks, claudia. mr. ambassador, you mention the crowded field out there.

. >> woodruff: we just saw michelle obama, the first lady, talking with one of those special guests. and again i'm reminded that's the mother of the 15-year-old teenager, young woman. she performed at the president's inauguration from chicago. she went home to chicago and then was gunned down in a shooting that was said to be just a mile or so from the president's house. >> that's right. and two people were arrested yesterday. >> woodruff: and one of the points the white house has been making is that gun violence is not something distant. it touches many many families in this country. that's one of the points. >> that's a realm where i think there's some possibility of some legislation. i'm not sure it will be as ambitious as what the president proposed but some sort of background check, magazine things. so again if you bracket some of the really divisive issues, you can get small steps down at least. >> woodruff: what we're going to hear from the president tonight is he's going to make a push, we're told, to ban assault weapons and to do something about background checks, tighten up background
will shake out. it's just the beginning of the term for mr obama, which i am really glad that we have a black president for the first time and that is doing a really great. great i do approve democracy 100%. i am a democrat. in regard to the two points. are you still there? host: a if you could get to the minimum wage. caller: bringing to the minimum wage up to $9 and ours is kind of high. -- $9 an hour. if we look at an increase of $1.50, that's a burden to employers, even if you have one employee. we have seen increases in the minimum wage throughout history. typically it does not go up a whole dollar. it does not make much sense in regard to the cost of living and [indiscernible] . it's not going to help. i think the minimum wage needs to be increased. it should not be more than 95 cents. there are a lot of rules. host: i think we get your point. dawn is in florida. caller: i totally support the increase in minimum wage. i work for fortune 500 grocery chain that's in the top 100. i make $9 an hour. they make billions a year. i an a cashier.i sca i scan food all day that i cannot afford to
york. i'm chris hayes. the obama justice department filed a brief last night with the united states supreme court urging justices to strike down the defense of marriage act which the court will rule on later this year. we're going to be talking about mother supreme court case in just a second. and the president announced last night that american troops have been sent to build a new base there. right now i'm joining by "the nation" magazine editor. conservatives take aim at voting rights. ryan haygood a member of the litigation team arguing shelby v. holder before the supreme court this week. and bishop harry jones, a pastor at the mount mariah baptist church in colorado and in support of the voting rights act. in 1965, over a century of the emancipation proclamation, signed into law, people of color with their exercise of the right to vote. the heart of the voting ryes action is section five which subjects any voting changes in the south and some other covered jurisdictions with a history of racial discrimination to a process known as preclearance. meaning these states must first cl

'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he
of nebraska and every state in america is required by law to implement president obama's new federal health care law. the financial impact is enormous. it will cost more than $170 million in federal and state funds over the next eight years to implement just the technology and administration required by the new federal health care law. and even more significant, it will cost the state of nebraska $72 million in new general funds in this budget for the growth of the current medicaid program as a result of the new federal health care law. that's $72 million in new general fund spending for president obama's new federal health care law -- money that should be going to state aid to education or higher education. i am also very concerned about federal economic policy and its impact on nebraska. unlike the federal government, we don't spend money we don't have. we balance our budget in state government and our family budgets by controlling spending, not by raising taxes. nebraskans are very careful and conservative in how they spend their money. this conservative approach has led to positive nati
us on facebook. tuesday, president obama talked about deferring the cuts that were to go into effect next month. wednesday, leading republicans on the armed services committees outline their plans to avoid those automatic defense cuts. this is 30 minutes. >> yesterday, the president gave us a proposal that cuts defense spending once again. it has $500 billion in new taxes and also cuts in domestic spending. it is irresponsible, unacceptable. it leaves their troops and our economy and ready to face the challenges of the future. or the threats of today. when i went to the steering committee to apply for this job, i explained to them the way i saw the jobless to make sure that our troops, those who we sent into harm's way would have everything they needed to carry out their missions and return home safely. everything in the way resources, training, leadership, these things are very important. and i look at what is happening with these cuts that we have seen the last couple of years and it is just irresponsible that the commander in chief, his main job should be the same that i look at a
of the votes needed to advance the process. something president obama chalked up to partisan politics. >> there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. there are only a handful of instances in which there's been any kind of filibuster of anybody for a cabinet position in our history. and what seems to be happening -- and this has been growing over time -- is the republican minority in the senate seem to think that the rule now is that you have to have 60 votes for everything. well, that's not the rule. it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan, and i need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with our allies to make sure that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> joe, senator john mccain offered a different -- and this is -- actually, i felt better after i heard this -- he offered a different rationale for the republican opposition. it's personal. it's one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> oh, okay. >> there's a lot of ill will tow
called the rural council when president obama established a council of all federal agencies that is involved in rural america. lindsay basically led that effort. she left usda because she had a call to help kids in trouble. she is pursuing work in social work. three great kids, four great- grandchildren. that says a lot about tom daschle. he will share with you today his insights. i saw him the other day at a lunch in a restaurant in washington, d.c. what impressed me the most was that virtually no one entered that restaurant without stopping at his table. we are fortunate to have them here today. ladies and gentlemen, tom daschle. [applause] >> thank you. it is so nice to be with all of you and be here this morning. only at a conference can you hear four speakers by 9 a.m. tom gave an eloquent and powerful analysis of the risks we face in agriculture, man- made and natural. it is a reminder yet again of the extraordinary leadership that we have in our agriculture today. i consider him a very dear friend. an unparalleled public servant. someone that i admire for so many reas
environmental issues among our top priorities. as president obama stressed in his state of the union address earlier this week, there is an undeniable trend of warmer climates and a rise in the frequency of natural disasters which cause devastation across this nation. we are headed in the wrong direction, and we need serious action to protect our planet. we can fight global warming while still growing our economy. we can do it by investing in clean renewable resources like wind and solar with equipment produced right here in the united states of america. by dealing seriously with environmental issues, we can boost our economy, decrease our reliance on foreign oil and leave a better world for our children. these should be our top priorities as members of congress, as citizens and as parents and it is time these issues receive the attention that they deserve. i yield the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from utah rise? >> mr. speaker, i rise to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentle
. >>> president obama heads to virginia today where he'll outline the impact of the looming budget cuts. yesterday, the president met with the nation's governors asking them to pressure congress to do something. but louisiana governor bobby jindal is among top republicans accusing the president of trying to scare americans. he said instead it's time for mr. obama to show leadership. >> congress should not allow these arbitrary, sequester cuts to go through and hurt our economy, slow our recovery. there's got to be a better way. >> now is the time to cut spending. it can be done without jeopardizing the economy and critical services. >> south carolina governor nikki haley took aim at democrats and republicans saying "no one should be playing golf, no one should be taking vacations until the issue is resolved." i think probably the whole country agrees with that. let's get something done here. because again, we've seen this. we had the fiscal cliff thing at the end of the year. another issue come may with the debt ceiling. and the republicans are saying mr. president, all you're doing is scaring peo
, president obama called on every elected official to act. >> all of us are concerned about our politics, both in our own parties as well as the other parties, but at some point, we have to do some governing. >> reporter: a couple of key republican leaders are coming to the white house about meetings but it's not on sequester. it's on immigration. john mccain and lindsey graham coming here to talk immigration. again, no scheduled talks on trying to prevent the sequester from kicking in on friday. >> with just a few days to go. chuck todd, thank you very much. >>> let's get a check of the other top stories of the day. natalie morales is here with that. >> good morning, matt and savannah. good morning, everyone. after nearly two weeks of delays, a divided senate is moving ahead toward a vote on the president's defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. after republicans stalled his nomination, the former gop senator is now back on track to win confirmation and succeed leon panetta. >>> violence in civil war this morning as a massive explosion rocks damascus. this just hours after president bash bash
that i believe president obama is doing by calling republicans, talking to them, trying to work with them. and when that happens, big things get solved. the fiscal cliff got solved because people started talking to one another. so this can happen again. yes, ma'am. >> yes, have your phones been ringing from members of the public? and if so, what are they saying? >> i'm sorry have -- >> have your phones been ringing from members of the public yet? >> no, but look, this is the announcement today. we've been doing a lot of this background work, and so i have no doubt my phones will ring from members of congress -- why is my control tower being closed? >> mr. secretary, where were these warnings two weeks ago, a week ago? i mean, speaking of movie references, this might be called an acting performance, because you are -- you're going to be scaring the public today. this is going to be scaring the public about their travel plans. >> well, we'll see what the reaction of the public is. what i'm trying to do is to wake up members of the congress on the republican side to the idea that they need t
this in both the bush administration and now in the obama administration. clearly, whatever limits, and i think the limits are very severe now on the demilitarized zone dealing with the proliferation question at all, but any prospect of dealing with it i think is nonexistent, as long as the state department maintains this kind of blackout policy and, not only dividing any information about it, but and, frankly, wanted to do with this at all in negotiations with north korea. chris hill took it off the table february agreement. did not mention proliferation. and that's just an example of the situation. so this relationship that north korea has with iran i believe has entered a new and more formidable and threatening stage, frankly, at this point. >> thank you, larry. if there is someone from state department. representing the state department right here. okay. the floor is open. anybody can comment to joe's comment, larry's, argument, what not. the floor is open. raise your hand. identify yourself. okay, would you come up? >> [inaudible] >> standby microphone, please. thank you. >> this question

, president obama initially proposed the sequester in 2011. i voted against its creation and voted twice to replace its arbitrary cuts. americans deserve real solutions and genuine accountability. improper payments by the federal government exceeded $115 billion in 2011. surely the president is willing to address those improper payments before allowing the sequestration cuts to take place. with that i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from california seek recognition? without objection. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise to bring awareness to the automatic trigger cuts known as sequestration and the impact it will have on domestic violence programs in california. i thank my colleagues who voted today for a commonsense piece of legislation known as the violence against women act. this landmark legislation comes on the eve of looming budget cuts that will have devastating impacts on domestic violence prevention programs throughout california, which already operate on tight budgets. mrs. negrete mcleod
